Namco Bringing Sailor Moon Game To Nintendo DS…In Italy


Namco Bandai Games Europe are reviving Sailor Moon in game form on the Nintendo DS…but only in Italy. Sailor Moon: La Luna Splende (or Sailor Moon: The Shining Moon) has you playing as Sailor princesses Moon, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter and Venus.


La Luna Splende is the Italian title for Sailor Moon R, suggesting that the game might take place during the series’ “Black Moon” arc. La Luna Splende has you exploring three worlds — the "Jewel Palace," the "Mystery Castle" and "Flower Garden," each consisting of 20 to 30 stages.


Sailor Moon: La Luna Splende is due out in Spring 2011. Namco haven’t confirmed the game for release in any territory outside Italy yet.
